It’s been quiet around here, and no, I can’t blame lack of time for the lack of updates…I’ve been straight-up lazy. Despite achieving what we often refer to as “millionaire status” in regards to days off and lack of obligations (read: unemployed) over the last few months, I’ve slipped. I’m one of those people who gets more done with less time; it’s a blessing and a curse. So hit me with a few months off and you can almost guarantee that it’ll result in countless days spent at The Center® with hardly an iPhone clip to show for it.
Anyway, for all two of you that know about this site here’s what’s been going on. First and foremost, I’ll direct you to the embedded video above titled “bvt raw” from my dude Avery. Fullscreen, grab your favorite beverage, skin-up or whatever…you know what to do. Nearly 20 minutes of raw footage from Burlington, VT and Montreal. Dais. Honorable mention: Ray’s iPhone Dump.
Jay Meador & Justen Snyder in “Dueling Spothunters” from a few months back. If you couldn’t tell, timeliness is not of the essence around here. I think skatehere.com posted this they day it was uploaded or something…4 months ago.
In honor of the cherry blossoms blossoming here in Shanghai, I’d like to plug “Sakura Zine“, a video and photo collaborative effort from Cole Giordano, Mike Sikora and Takahiro Morita that combines “the aesthetics of skateboarding with the sakura (cherry blossoms), striving to capture the spirit of Japan through the movement and fluidity of skateboarding.” Shout out to SikySik on this one – we’ll see you in a few months my dude!
Temperatures have been 70+ all week which means yes, I’m American, but also that it’s almost ice cream season. Brush up on that Mandarin.
冰棒 / bīng bàng = popsicle, ice pop | 冰淇淋 / bīng qí lín = ice cream.
That’s it, that’s all, happy Lawson’s Season y’all – enjoy the warm weather, be safe and don’t forget to bring a light jacket because it’s still a bit chilly at night.
